San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that quarterback Brock Purdy is in the concussion protocol. While he won't participate in regular practice today, he can take part in walk-throughs.

This development is noteworthy as the team prepares for its Week 8 showdown with the Cincinnati Bengals, especially considering the tight schedule they're working with following a Monday night game. San Francisco hopes to snap its two-game losing streak.

"He does have enough time [to clear the protocol before Sunday]," Shanahan said. "He's just got to go through the process."


Veteran Sam Darnold will receive the starting practice reps with Purdy sidelined.

Shanahan mentioned that Purdy's symptoms started manifesting on the plane ride back to the Bay Area after the 49ers' loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He noted that the development was "kind of a surprise" when he woke up to depart the aircraft.

In addition to Purdy, wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) and Tackle Trent Williams (ankle) will also not participate in practice. Shanahan hopes Williams can return to practice on Thursday. Samuel has already been ruled out for this weekend.

The 49ers are giving linebacker Dre Greenlaw a veteran day off, and running back Christian McCaffrey (oblique) is full go for today's practice.

Game manager or game changer? RG3 weighs in on 49ers QB Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla

The debate between game manager versus game-changer continues, even after Brock Purdy helped guide the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl. While the quarterback has done everything asked of him, aided by his talented supporting cast, there remain skeptics who persist in downplaying his achievements. Former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III, who once played in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, is not among Purdy's doubters. Speaking to Jason McCourty on Griffin's podcast, "RG3 and The Ones," Griffin shared his thoughts on the 49ers' quarterback. Griffin reflects on Purdy's season and his Super Bowl appearance, insisting it's challenging to come away from his performances believing the 24-year-old quarterback is merely a game manager. "There

49ers QB Brock Purdy outlines his plans for improving his game over the offseason

By Kirk Larrabee

Brock Purdy is going to be a busy man in the months ahead, both on and off the field. And if everything goes right, he'll come out of it in a much better place than he was a year ago. Purdy was facing some uncertainty at this time last year after suffering a torn UCL in his elbow while trying to lead the San Francisco 49ers against the Philadelphia Eagles as a rookie quarterback in the NFC Championship game. An offseason of surgery and rehabilitation awaited Purdy in February 2023, but after a successful second season that saw him finish as a finalist for the NFL's Most Valuable Player award while guiding the 49ers to Super Bowl LVIII, Purdy will now have the opportunity to focus his offseason efforts on improving as a player instead of trying to heal his

The San Francisco 49ers' collapse in Super Bowl 58 has fueled skepticism from one controversial media personality, indicating a lack of trust in two key figures of the franchise. Skip Bayless is among those doubting quarterback Brock Purdy's capabilities, which isn't new information. Additionally, he questions head coach Kyle Shanahan's effectiveness. Bayless says he was confident that the Kansas City Chiefs would beat the 49ers because of superior coaching by Andy Reid and exceptional talent in quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With Steve Spagnuolo leading the Chiefs' defense, Bayless believes the result was inevitable. "I'm sorry. More than ever, I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan, and I don't believe in Brock Purdy," Bayless said on his FOX Sports podcast. "And I
